Any jet aircraft pilots out there? Especially small jet’s like the old Douglas A4.
My question is, when you change attitude such as pitch up or down or go into a turn does the engine rotor produce a noticeable gyroscopic force on the plane?
I got to thinking about this after having watched a program on WWI fighters that used rotary engines. In this engine, the crankshaft is stationary and everything else on the engine rotates. This produced a large gyroscopic torque that made the plane difficult to fly especially at low speeds on landing and takeoff when control was marginal anyway.
